How To Get the Best from Your Locum Recruitment Company
Registering with a recruitment company such as AUSSTAT is the first step in making your life easier when it comes to booking locum work. Our team is dedicated to finding you the role which best suits you but there are things you can do to get the best from your account manager and team.
1. Update Your Availability With Us Whenever You Can
This is something you will hear us saying often but we really can’t recommend this enough. Vacancies are coming in every hour and if we know you are ready to go now, or in 6 months time, it can make the difference between landing the best locum roles. Whether you do it online, email or over the phone the result is the same and you will get the choice of roles above those that wait.
2. Be Specific as to What You Want and Where You Want to Go
We know your time is valuable and don’t want to needlessly intrude, so by giving us the honest truth about what you want out of your locums can help us target not only our system but also our thoughts in that direction to giving you what you want. It might be locations, types of roles, length of work or times of the year or even what you don’t want, it all helps make the best placements for you. Equally, if you are happy to do anything and go anywhere and have the skills to match we can cater to your needs too.
3. Act Quickly – Prompt Decisions Will Secure the Best Jobs
As time-frames can be tight when securing locum work, it can pay to make decisions quickly to secure the best work. Your Locum Account Manager will not expect you to accept work without first providing you with much information as they can, to give you the best picture of what the requirements of the placement will be, so you can make a prompt determination as to whether you wish to be put forward for the work.
4. Be Contactable
We appreciate that you might be working, on holiday or just busy, so let us know what is the best way to contact you, what times of the day are ‘no-go zones’ and when is good and we will try our best to stick to these. Obviously, if your dream locum comes along we don’t want you to miss out either so will be in touch as soon as suitable.
5. Be open to new experiences, locations and colleagues
It’s amazing how we humans naturally seek a certain element of routine in our lives but being a locum means that you have or are happy to widen your comfort zone and try new things with the reward generally being new skills, fantastic experiences, people and adventures in places you never knew you wanted to go!
With your AUSSTAT personal password you are able to log in to MySTAT from the website at any time. This gives you access to your placement details, travel and work schedule as well as managing your locum earnings. Log in to your secure MySTAT area where all these functions and many more can be found in one easy place.
MyALERTS are set up by you in MySTAT and allow you to be sent instantly, daily or weekly alerts for your specific skill set/s. These alerts can be sent to an email address or mobile number of your choice, for periods of time of your choosing. These are not only hot jobs everyone has access to on our website but because you set the criteria of the alert you can tailor it when and where you want it.

Not only can you call or email us but sometimes we understand that you are just too busy or it might be the middle of the night when you are getting around to your personal admin.
Not to worry, login to MySTAT at any time and update your availability. An email is then automatically sent to your Locum Account Manager who can search for relevant options for you based on your specified dates. Remember the more information you can give us in terms of your preferences, the easier and quicker we can make securing your next locum job.
